Jose Peseiro has exited the Super Eagles team as coach, The Herald reports.

Peseiro disclosed this in a tweet via his X account on Friday, stating that it is a pride and honour to have coached the Super Eagles.

This is, however, coming after the expiration of his contract, just after the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Portuguese tactician stated that he will be leaving alongside his backroom staff, noting that they will miss the team but will always be there for them.

“Yesterday, we concluded our contract with the NFF. It was a pride and honor to coach the Super Eagles. It has been 22 months of immense dedication, sacrifice, emotion, and enormous enthusiasm. We feel a sense of fulfillment.”

“We would like to express our gratitude to Sir Amaju Pinnick (the president who signed us), President Ibrahim Gusau, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi, Secretary Dayo Enebi, the NFF, all the Staff, and especially all the PLAYERS, with whom leading has been a great pleasure.

“Guys, we are thankful; it has been a privilege to be part of this family. We will miss you, but we will always be there for you, no matter where you are. A big hug to all of you,” he stated.

The Algerian Football Federation has, however, shown interest in hiring coach Jose Peseiro, who led Nigeria to the finals of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Recall that Djamel Belmadi was fired following a dismal performance after the nation failed to advance beyond the group stages at the just-concluded AFCON tournament.
